Archiving inactive data is a necessary and important part of managing business information, but the task has become increasingly complicated and expensive in recent years. Data volumes continue to grow exponentially, increasing the cost of secondary storage for archiving in addition to the cost of primary storage. Regulatory environments are constantly evolving and becoming ever more stringent, adding complexity to archiving and long-term retention. And IT teams face increasing pressure to contain costs and “do more with less” when it comes to archiving business information.

What’s the difference between archiving and backup?
Data backup provides protection by copying certain data to another location, on-site or off-site, where it can be accessed in the event that primary data is corrupted, lost, compromised or stolen. Data archiving is more concerned with retaining certain data for specific periods of time to provide important information, historical context or compliance with regulatory frameworks.
